overview of the organization

Laird Therapy Dog Rescue helps unwanted dogs become valued community resources.

  • We rescue outstanding dogs who would otherwise be killed.
  • We help our dogs and others serve their communities as therapy dogs in a wide variety of settings: preschools, K-12, colleges, libraries, camps, senior care facilities, hospitals, etc.
  • We present our dogs to the public as shining examples of the overwhelming number of dogs available from shelters and rescue organizations.
  • We try to model responsible dog guardianship and assist others in caring for their dogs.
  • We feature our dogs in presentations to schools and other community groups about dog bite prevention and responsible dog care.
  • We supply dogs for socialization and training of client dogs in behavior consultations, playgroups, and classes.
  • We provide pre-trained "loaner dogs" to help people learn to care for dogs before getting dogs of their own.
  • We work with foster homes and trainers to ease the stress of caring for our dogs.
  • We are developing a self-sustaining operation that allows the group to focus on serving dogs and people instead of soliciting donations.
  • We will use our experience to assist other rescue groups.
  • We occasionally place dogs in exceptional adoptive homes.

We are located in Rensselaer and West Lafayette, Indiana, USA.
